New State of Disaster Philanthropy Report Shows That Funding Today Can Help Funders Better Respond to Future Crises

New York, NY, and Washington, DC—November 10, 2021. Candid and the Center for Disaster Philanthropy (CDP) released the eighth edition of their annual research report, Measuring the State of Disaster Philanthropy 2021: Data to Drive Decisions. The report shows why disaster-related funding in 2019 impacts philanthropy’s response to COVID-19 and other disasters today and in the future.

Candid and CDP examined available 2019 data on global disaster-related philanthropy, analyzing funding from foundations, bilateral and multilateral donors, the U.S. federal government, corporations, and donations through donor-advised funds (DAFs) and online platforms. They identified funding gaps and areas of opportunity so that crisis-affected communities have resources for immediate relief and long-term recovery.
